The removal of the entire crown to either a framework or a single stem/main trunk. (Please note that this can only be done on certain species which can be discussed at the quotation stage) Pollarding is a good technique for trees in a tight or awkward spot, removing as much as possible without losing the tree completely.
Tree Crown Reduction
The removal of a percentage of the whole crown. This technique lowers the height and shortens the sides, whilst maintaining a natural form. We achieve this by pruning limbs back to side or at secondary growth points. The recommended percent of the crown to be removed would usually be between 20% and 30%.
End Weight Reduction
The removal of selected secondary branches to reduce the weight of a large limb. This technique is used mainly to help prevent large limbs falling from veteran trees. Without losing the original shape.
We use a non-invasive cable bracing system called “Cobra”. We use this on large heavy limbs that have faults or are liable to fail, the Cobra system attaches the problematic limbs to the main stem to reduce the risk of failure and prolong the life of the limb.
Crown Thinning and Deadwood Removal
A portion of the tree’s secondary or internal growth is removed without affecting the original shape, removing dead, diseased and weak branches. We also remove crossing and eccentric growth. The aim of thinning a tree is to keep a uniformed crown, reduce the risk of disease and the danger of falling dead branches.
